Why Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy continues to be fast growing and widely utilized in the prevention and treatment of many health issues. Massage therapy can relieve pain, increase range of motion by elongating shortened muscles, break down scar tissue, improve circulation and blood flow, and aid in healthy Lymphatic flow. Massage therapy is used to relax and soften overused muscles, reducing spasms and cramping, increasing joint flexibility and reducing recovery time for strenuous workouts and working towards eliminating pain all together.

Massage is one of the oldest and best remedies for Stress, which in and of itself leads to many ailments.

It is proven to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) and to help relax the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight). Reducing stress achieves a myriad of things. It nurtures a positive outlook on life and thereby reduces the likelihood of illness.

Massage helps to release endorphins ( the body's natural pain killers) and is ideal for the adjunct treatment for chronic illness and injury, as well as helping patients recover from surgery to control and relieve pain. It also helps to reduce post surgical adhesions and edema.

As one of the oldest recorded Health protocols dating back over 3,000 years to Japan, China , Persia and Egypt, Massage therapy remains one of the most Natural, effective and preventative remedies available.
